9 Knightly Ways to Spend Your Days in NYC

Read next

Every kid loves to travel back in time – especially to the age of dark castles, noble knights and precious princesses. There’s plenty to do for the princess-obsessed, but what about kids who fantasize about being brave knights, riding galloping horses and slaying fierce dragons? Well, have no fear. Here are nine knightly ways to spend your days – and, in some cases, nights – from fencing and jousting to checking out armor and trying on capes.

<h3><a target="_blank" href="http://www.dinosaurhill.com/index.html">Dinosaur Hill</a> Toy Shop</h3> <a target="_blank" href="http://www.dinosaurhill.com/index.html">Dinosaur Hill</a> is a whimsical little toy shop that seems to be curated by a big-time fairy tale fan. Yes, there are building block sets, but Dinosaur Hill offers sets with a medieval theme like wooden catapults or trebuchets. You won’t find any puppets of Dora or Spongebob here, but you will discover Camelot finger puppets and old-time marionettes of witches, jesters and wizards. Younger kids will love the dragon stuffed animals that are so cuddly you may have to buy one for yourself. Dinosaur Hill also stocks accessories that every knight must have: golden-colored capes and shields that are adorned with a coat of arms. If you want to give your child’s bedroom a fairy-tale feel, check out the quilted wall hangings or the dreamy mobiles. <address><a target="_blank" href="http://www.dinosaurhill.com/index.html">Dinosaur Hill</a></address><address>306 East 9th Street New York, Ny</address><address><b>Phone</b>: 212-473-5850</address><address><b>Hours</b>: Open daily, 11:00 am to 7:00 pm.</address><address><b>Need to Know</b>: The store is crowded with toys, so you may have to hunt around for that special one.</address><address> </address><address><em>Image courtesy of Alice Perry</em>fuck
